Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Final few days left on Game of Games. How are you doing with week 4? Ready to be done or still working? The women’s World Cup final is on today, is that something you’ll be checking out?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town?  Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  Remember get those Game of Games Showoff submissions in by Tuesday night.  Details on the showoff here.

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

    • I deleted what you wrote not because I don’t agree with you or im trying to silence you. I deleted it because this is not a political blog. This is a Simpsons blog. Not the place for conversations like this.
      Any more comments by anyone that get political will be deleted.

      Simpsons blog guys. Keep politics away from here. That goes for you too Pat 👀

      • My bad, and my apologies.

        If anyone goes walking in the woods,
        Be sure to use your bug repellent
        To make certain that you avoid multiple 🕷 🕷 insect bites
        Poly ticks

        I’ll agree to a three week banishment from this site
        This comment is truly awful

  2. Anyone else super pissed there was no new president for annual July 4th event?

  3. Been M.I.A here for a while, picked up a new addiction a while back. My 10 yr old really wanted me to play Fortnite and now I can’t stop😂 anyway… this will be the first event in a while I won’t finish. Got started a few days late because of work being busy. I thought I managed to catch up and finish then a 5th part happened. Oh well… my town is getting messy anyway.

  4. I wanted to give an idea for a post, and I apologize if that was already done, but my search didn’t yield results…
    I am constantly looking for information about real estate points. But not regular upgradeable buildings, but unique items, when you place them, it awards millions of points, and those points dont disappear when you store the item.
    For example , fission boat. Available in store. 3+ mln RE points.
    Other items available thru yearbook look like they might have those points too, but sometimes even the description in your storage doesn’t reveal they have RE points.
    I am saving those points to beat a player to the first place, and I once placed something I previously got thru yearbook and unexpectedly got 3 mln points, though I checked description before placing item.
    So, long story short, it would be nice to have a list of items that award those points: regular premium items and limited time items.
    Thanks for reading!

  5. Started on the last prize tonight. Should be done with this event late tomorrow night. I have thoroughly enjoyed this event. Pretty soon, I’m going to need to do a redesign. I’m hoping I’ll be able to do it without blowing up my town. I will see.

      A Priest, a Rabbi and a Minister…….

      Aww, forget it.

      Two fishing buddies invite a third fellow to go fishing with them.
      They take their boat out to a lake and anchor just off shore from a resort area.
      After a while, fishing guy #1 states he is hungry, steps out of the boat and walks to the shore and buys a sandwich from the vendor there. And returns.
      Later, fishing guy #2 states he is thirsty, steps out of the boat and walks to the shore and buys a beverage. And walks back to the boat

      A short time later the new guy declares that he is hungry. He stands up, steps out of the boat and sinks to the bottom of the lake.

      #1 turns to #2 to and says…

      I guess we should have told him where the steppingstones are located.


    Who knew Pirates can walk on water lol.

  7. Wishing my fellow Tappers a nice weekend (weekend off from tapping, I’m on last Event Prize, definitely will get it Monday) 😀

    Simpson’s related stuff seen online (including a few San Diego Comic-Con exclusives from Funko) 👍

    Kang & Kudos Glow In The Dark

    Treehouse of Horror Collection

    Some more about Moe

    Is EA treated fairly? or do sometimes they screw up and get dolled the harshness? You decide

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Interesting interview. I sympathize with EA on this. I work for a large service provider company and it’s to the point where I cannot wear anything with the corporate logo on it as I will get nothing but complaints from people.

      Yes it’s a big company, yes management is screwed up—just like any big company—but there are a lot of us that come to work and try to improve the customer experience. Many times we are frustrated by policies, etc..but we really do try.

      But I have also learned that there are lots of people that will never be happy no matter what you do for them.

      • Bingo! That’s it right there. That last sentence. Once you learn that life gets a lot easier. It applies to nearly every aspect of life.

      • No doubt about it….the majority of people need to find a reason to be upset. Think about ourselves, family, friends….some people just can’t function if they are not angry about something. They feel abnormal if they are not upset or jealous or mad. They think someone is always trying to take from them or give them less or giving others more. As the great Seinfeld once said, “Yea..people, they’re the worst”.

        • Rusty Shackleford

          Only you can decide to be mad or let something bother you!

          I had to learn that in therapy, but the lesson did sink in.

      • Tracy-1ltwoody920

        Tai-Chi step aside and let it flow by
        Empower yourself through choice
        Someone screams at me, I choose not to yell back
        I choose not to allow them to control me and my behavior.
        Don’t get angry at the insults thrown at you, rather gain satisfaction from enraging them by your not engaging in THEIR choice
        (Naw, That is ornery – maintain happiness at your success in choosing your path)
        You are not weak because you FAIL to respond,
        You are strong because you CHOOSE not to respond.

        • Tracy-1ltwoody920

          And like I said
          It can really, really, REALLY annoy the bejeebers out of them.
          And gain respect for you from others observing the situation.

        • Rusty Shackleford

          That’s the other thing I learned: you don’t have to respond to everything.

          Never tried Tai-chi, I like yoga, but I’m not very good at it. I listen to asmr videos to help me fall asleep.

      • Rusty Shackleford 👍

        If you can make at least a majority percentage wise of the Customers happy? Well, I believe that’s to be applauded (this tells me a Company has hired enough Staff to handle any situation).

        If the need to help Customers is so great that there is not enough Staff being hired to the situation? Or, Staff is expected to handle more than what they should and it’s having a negative impact? (now here’s where I feel EA is guilty!) Then perhaps our frustration shouldn’t necessarily be directed at EA regarding epic fails in their Games / Game Apps, but for not making sure their Staff has the adequate means to handle any situation.

        It’s truly impossible to maintain 100% Customer Is Happy

      • A lot of adults never grow up. They act like children, have a sense of entitlement and don’t know how to be grateful. People like that are hard to be around and you just have to deal with things the best you can.

  8. Well… Server problems since last night. Still ongoing. Guess I’m not finishing the event. Sigh

  9. This website is more fun than Disneyland with a slightly higher rating

    🐒🌎 . Live well and prosper . See ya bye . 👽

  10. Out of land…again…wish I hadn’t missed golden goose realty

  11. Played soccer for 3yrs as a youth, have had absolutely NO interest in it since.

    • Had to coach it 1 yr when my little guy played and no one else stepped up. He quit after that season. I hadn’t been interested since then either! Lol

  12. Over halfway to General Splatten. Ok on vacation so looking forward to getting this over with. Having a great time visiting family that I’ve not seen in 2 years. Oh yeah that’s why I’m not doing random songs (if anyone even cared anymore)

    • I’m always amazed by the amount of diversity in your playlists. At times when I’m studying I’ll check out the bands/songs on You Tube. I’m sure it is a hassle to type up each week and I wouldn’t blame you for not wanting to do it anymore but at least some of us are interested. Glad you are enjoying your time with family.

      • I really do enjoy doing it. I once did a list of 1000 songs. Took about a week. That was before I posted them on here. Glad to hear people enjoy it and listen to some of it. Thanks!

    • I’ve always enjoyed viewing your playlists….for some odd reason, as I’ve aged, I’ve become out of touch with music….I had job in news…kinda…my listening habits while making commutes turned into listening to talk radio, either politics or sports. Keep the playlists coming….it’s nice to come across an obscure band or song you mention, brings me back to the day or time…..

      • Thanks. I thought I was boring people and kozzi was the only one to post lists regularly and haven’t seen kozzi around for a while. I’m out of town for two more Sundays so I might get a short one out but for sure when I’m back in my music chair

    • justinmwat151

      Even though I don’t contribute my own list, I always enjoy reading yours sonic. You seem to have a very wide range of musical taste

    • Hi sonicboinyc – I always enjoyed your lists, and enjoyed putting some up myself. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a lot of time for either the game or this blog for quite a while, so this fell by the wayside. Sorry!

  13. So I’ve done it. I’ve gotten every character and skin from the yearbook!!!! I’m so happy.

    I guess I’ll stockpile donuts for new content, unless there’s a must-have building or decoration in the yearbook you think I should know about.

  14. Won’t be checking out the World Cup, kinda done with soccer. But I won’t cheer for the US. Being dutch I have to support the Orange Lions!
    Almost done with Game Of Games, The General is done, and by this time tommorow the last item will be in my town.

  15. Have a happy Sunday

    Happy tapping all 😁, finished the event today and submitted my design for the showoff, struggled to design this one but gave it a shot 😄, not my best effort.

    Been watching some of the woman’s world games, Scotland didn’t do that great, the var system very strict I thought but still proud, the USA team absolutely brilliant game’s what a team, will be watching today’s game.

    Have a great week tappers 😁

    • I stopped watching when Scotland was bounced out. I expected them to play a little better. Oh well.
